China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) has ranked Zhonglun Law Firm as a top Chinese law firm in securities legal services, according to its newly issued Development Report on Securities Legal Services in 2007.
Zhonglun was ranked 3rd in the initial public offering (IPO) legal services and ranked 5th in the offshore offering legal services, according to the report.
The report, part of the CSRC's China Capital Markets Legal Development Report 2007, has been the first of its kind in respect of securities legal services in 2007 by Chinese law firms since the CSRC abolished the qualification examination procedure for securities practitioners.

Zhonglun has assembled a great team of attorneys-at-law specializing in corporate securities legal services with extensive experience in investment, financing, listing, mergers and acquisitions, and restructuring. Some senior attorneys-at-law have been practicing in corporate securities legal services since the early 1990s, some have obtained certified public accountant qualifications with in-depth knowledge and experience in finance and tax, others have studied in Europe or the US, practiced in foreign law firms and had foreign legal practice qualifications. They are capable of practicing in many foreign languages such as English, French, Korean and Japanese, and have made outstanding achievements in the field of securities legal services.
